Science 101 for Parents – The Biology of Sensory Perception: How Children Discover the World



A. James Hudspeth, The Rockefeller University: From the first moments of life, a child’s rapidly developing brain is constantly being shaped by sights, sounds and other sensations. At the winter 2012 Parents & Science program, Rockefeller University neurobiologist A.

He also discussed environmental factors that may damage hearing in adolescents and young adults.
